We at The Fabric were very fortunate to spend time with seven interns who closely worked with our portfolio companies in the Mountain View office this summer. The Fabric co-creates companies with entrepreneurs in the cloud and IoT infrastructure space.

Here is what they have said about their summer internship at The Fabric:


Srikhar Padmanabhan, a rising senior from Dupont Manual High School in Louisville, Kentucky.

Summer internship was a great opportunity for me to learn about startup environment. During my time at The Fabric, I worked with OpsCruise, a company focused on autonomous operations, on creating and optimizing sankey diagrams and zoomable sunbursts, as part of learning visualization of data. I did this using d3js, a JavaScript library for visualizing data.


Sonal Gaur, San Francisco State University

I was helping OpsCruise with their business development. I’ve worked on finding information on potential customers and finding where the company will best fit in the market. I have had the chance get to know the wonderful employees in the office who are willing to share their experiences in the tech industry with us, and I have also been able to work with some amazing other summer interns.


Luke Dzwonczyk, a rising junior at UC Berkeley studying Computer Science and Music.

This summer I’ve been working at OpsCruise as a software development intern. I have really enjoyed starting my own project from scratch and adding to it over time, as well as getting exposed to new languages and ideas. The mentorship I have received from everyone in The Fabric community has been invaluable, and I’ll especially miss my fellow interns!


Leo Korsunsky, a sophomore at U.C. Berkeley majoring in physics and economics.

I have enjoyed working in a startup environment and learning from all of the interesting and experienced people who work at the Fabric. This summer I have worked with the team at KMesh, a stealth mode startup focusing on public cloud adoption, in creating a data model for marketing campaigns and researching industries that their product fits best.


Maya Vishwanath, a rising junior at Tufts University.

I had the opportunity to work for The Fabric as a business development intern. Specifically, I worked with Kavach, a stealth mode start-up in the security space, to perform detailed competitive analysis and product research. I evaluated the market and product landscape that helped the Kavach team build a strong competitive differentiation and proper product positioning. I enjoyed the collaborative and supportive environment at The Fabric and appreciated the incredible mentors I had the chance to work with.


Anuroop Thomas will be attending his Senior year at Lynbrook High School.

Over the course of the summer, I have been an intern at Kavach. I have been helping to develop Kavach’s product UI/UX and analytics features. I am enjoying every bit of my experience and hope that through this internship I get to learn how to work at a tech company, and further my knowledge on computer science.


Hari Krishna, Cal Poly SLO.

As opposed to many of the other interns at The Fabric, I wasn’t assigned to any specific portfolio company.

I was researching in the area of Enterprise Blochain/Distrubuted Ledgers. I am exhilarated to work in research as I get to deepen my knowledge base in blockchain, get to work on experimenting with different BaaS platforms, dabble in development work in Ethereum, and learn about early-stage startups, writing MRD’s, etc. No other company can offer such a variety of experiences and teach about pre-seed funded startup development. This combined with the great work culture and co-workers makes The Fabric an absolute pleasure to work for.


Best of luck to each of you as you embark on the upcoming school year.
